Does anybody have tips on making some approximation of a fest bier during the summer, without a refrigerator? I just moved and had to give up lots of equipment and don't have the ability to do a true lager. My basement gets down to 60-degrees, and I have cheap styrofoam cooler that fits a carboy and which I might be able to get down to 50 degrees with enough ice packs, but that would require a lot of attention.
Any suggestions on how to do a cheater Oktoberfest during the summer? My pregnant wife has requested it as her first post-birth beer. She's due in late-August.
